Neurosurgical management of brain metastases

Neurosurgical management of brain metastases Brain metastases present a significant public health issue, affecting more than 100,000 patients per year in the U.S. and result in significant morbidity. Brain metastases can occur in a variety of clinical situations ranging from multiple brain metastases with uncontrolled systemic disease to a solitary metastasis in the setting of controlled systemic disease. Additionally, advances in genomics have broadened the opportunities for targeted treatment options and potentially more durable systemic responses. As such, the treatment of brain metastases is now more tailored and multimodal, involving systemic, radiation, and surgical therapies, often in combination. This review discusses the historical and current role of neurosurgical techniques in the treatment of brain metastases. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical & Experimental Metastasis Springer Journals

Abstract

Brain metastases present a significant public health issue, affecting more than 100,000 patients per year in the U.S. and result in significant morbidity. Brain metastases can occur in a variety of clinical situations ranging from multiple brain metastases with uncontrolled systemic disease to a solitary metastasis in the setting of controlled systemic disease. Additionally, advances in genomics have broadened the opportunities for targeted treatment options and potentially more durable systemic responses. As such, the treatment of brain metastases is now more tailored and multimodal, involving systemic, radiation, and surgical therapies, often in combination. This review discusses the historical and current role of neurosurgical techniques in the treatment of brain metastases.
